Default We're #3 in Tailgating!!!

I saw this on the news this morning and decided to look it up. I thought it was neat that for a franchise that has only been around for a few years, that we were ranked third. But then again...I already knew that Texans fans know how to tailgate!

"After analyzing a host of criteria, including stadium parking lots, overall tailgating environment, tailgating-fan enthusiasm and the sales of tailgating accessories like in-car live TV systems and mobile programming, an alliance of tailgating experts has released for the first time the America's Best Football Tailgating Cities Index, a ranking of the “tailgating-friendliness” of the 31 U.S. cities with an NFL team plus NFL-hopeful Los Angeles. And the winners are...
1. Baltimore
2. Denver
3. Houston
4. San Diego
5. Cincinnati"

Precisely what I said. I don't think the Texans tailgate parties can be beat!

We had Dennis Watley (former Chiefs VP) at the opening game tailgate. I think he was impressed.

Nice to see us get some postive pub for once!

Default Re: We're #3 in Tailgating!!!

wow...that's great!

But I'm surprised that we're ranked higher than KC or Green Bay, cities with historic tailgating.

I'm not complaining, though. The Houston Texans and their fans rock!

BTW, we wnated to come over Sunday - but our grill pick up man left his tickets at home, and not realizing you could have them printed at Reliant, drove back to Galveston. So by the time we fired up the grill there was no time for Shotgun 30 :-( Hoping for the next game!

Default Re: We're #3 in Tailgating!!!

Well I would like to say I think they got that pretty much right.. I can only imagine if they allowed us to get in before 4 hours before kickoff, Platinum lot'ers no reply needed, I know....you got the bonus hr. But I know we get at the gate way before they open and set up for breakfast, a pretailgate party, and I see other cars doing alot of that as well. And since I doubt the "experts" get there that early, the #3 ranking could be a little low.

Regardless, we know how to freaking have a Texas sized party, and ain't no other fans can say that !!

I would have figured Kansas City would be #1. Apparently their games are supposed to have an almost college-like atmosphere. I guess they aren't as nice as other cities...

Damn no love for the steelers either....

When I was there this summer I saw people tailgating for the Pirates and they are always bottom-feeders.

We do it right.

I bet an old school electric football set would liven things up at a tailgate party.

I had always heard great things about KC and Philly tailgating. One thing we got going for us is great food and wide variety of cultures. The huge amount of parking helps too.

I gave up my tickets this past week to some family and I heard that the parking lot police are now a lot more vigiliant about not taking up extra spaces and the whole parking thing in general. We loved turning our 2 passes into 3 lots with some creative unloading and tent placement. My dad said that era seems to have ended.....boo.

I wouldn't go that far, each lot has it's own personality. Yellow, Blue, and Orange all seem to go about it the same way. It's when you have 35 vehicles lined up at each gate 1.5 hours ahead of time, you know this ain't no second rate tailgate ctiy !!

35 vehicles? Is that all you orange lotters bring to open the place?

Agreed. I've said it before...I'll say it again. The '<insert color here> lot is best' debate has gotten stale.

Can't we all just get along?
